The Blue Planet [electronic resource]

Loading...
Presents new revelations about the oceans, the last unexplored frontier on earth, from space by scientists aboard the space shuttle and by scientists diving to the depths of the middle ocean to examine rare life forms. Covers cycles of weather, aquatic weather, the Gulf Stream, concentrations of plankton and coral reefs. Introduces technological innovations that are used in studying the ocean and its creatures.

Spreading

Renowned oceanographer and geophysicist Walter Munk observes that spreading decreases the energy of sound as it travels. Energy loss due to spreading is proportional to the square of the distance from the source.

Sonar

Renowned oceanographer and geophysicist Walter Munk talks about sonar, which stands for sound navigation and ranging, the process by which objects (like submarines, for example) are discovered when sound waves are reflected off of them and then detected.

Future Frontiers

In the culmination of this 600-mile scientific expedition aboard the Alucia, Liz Bonnin and the team of scientific experts journey south to visit the oldest islands in the Galapágos to see first-hand the impact that humans have had on this pristine wilderness. Back on the larger island of Isabela, Liz descends into a spectacular vertical lava cave. Deep inside, she discovers how this hidden world could even provide an answer to how it might be possible to inhabit other planets. On her last land-based stop, on Santa Cruz, Liz comes face to face with the effects of man as she explores the misty scalesia forests. She also checks on a giant tortoise population, whose ancient migration pathways have come under threat from the largest human population on the archipelago. Finally, Liz dives [...]

Wild Extremes

The most extreme and wild parts of New Zealand are in the South Island, which lies towards Antarctica, in the path of the tempestuous "roaring forties." This is home to some of the most rapidly rising mountains in the world, the Southern Alps. From hyper-intelligent parrots to sinister snails with teeth and magical constellations of glow-worms, this is the story of New Zealand's wildest places and its most resilient pioneers, all of whom must embrace radical solutions to survive.

Antartic Edge: 70 Degrees South

A thrilling journey to one of the world's most perilous environments, Antarctic Edge: 70° South follows a team of scientists as they explore the West Antarctic Peninsula. In the wake of devastating climate events like Superstorm Sandy and Hurricane Katrina, oceanographer Oscar Schofield teams up with a group of researchers in a race to understand climate change in the fastest warming place on earth. While navigating through 60-foot waves and dangerous icebergs on a world-class icebreaker, the scientists travel to 70° south — to a rugged and inhospitable island called Charcot — with an arsenal of cutting-edge technology that will revolutionize how climate change is studied.

Secrets of the Deep

On the second leg of this incredible mission, Liz Bonnin and a team of scientific experts set off beneath the waves to explore this spectacular archipelago. It is an exciting opportunity for the team to delve into a world that still largely remains a mystery to science. Venturing down in the Nadir, a specially equipped deep-sea submersible, Liz goes in search of an elusive ocean giant, the mola, or sunfish, to understand more about its little-known behavior in the deep. On the way back to the Alucia, Liz checks in on a playful sea lion population to see how they have been affected by a recent extreme weather event, El Niño. Back on board the Alucia, the team sets sail north for the most remote and inhospitable islands in the Galapágos: Wolf and Darwin. Here, Liz joins the team taggin [...]

Differences Between Oceans and Continents (Part 2)

Geophysicist and geologist Tanya Atwater compares the relatively neat sea floor with continents, which she terms a "mess." She attributes these differences to the predictable and "tidy" process of seafloor spreading, as compared to the crashing together of continental structures.
